Date: May 2016 | 1500 SF | Location: Mansfield Ski Club
This boldly contemporary chalet will be the centerpiece of Mansfield Ski Club’s new life-lease chalet community in the Mulmur Hills. Situated on a steeply sloping site near the main clubhouse and adjacent to downhill ski runs, the compact 3-storey dwelling contains a total of 1670 sq. ft. of living space. Kitchen, dining & living areas, along with a small walkout deck, are located on the top floor to maximize natural light & views across the valley to the east. Two bedrooms (including a spacious master with ensuite bath) & a second full bath are located on the middle level. The lower level accommodates a small third bedroom or TV room, along with utility/storage space, a roughed-in future bath & single garage.
For convenience, entrances to the chalet are provided at both front (downhill) & rear (uphill), via a stair ‘tower’ located at the side of the main structure. Exterior cladding is a combination of various wood & metal sidings (incl. cedar as an accent at front entrance), oriented horizontally on the main structure & vertically on the stair tower. To unify the overall design composition, a darker colour siding is used to create a strong horizontal ‘belt’ that highlights the middle floor level . In selecting exterior materials & finishes, emphasis was placed on maximum durability to minimize long-term maintenance.
